Florida Salt Water Charter?

5 posts in this topic

This seems like the only appropriate place to post.

In the near future the family and I will be heading to Orlando for a week. One of those days I want to get out and try some salt-water fishing. Ideally I would like to have a good chance of putting something in the boat that's bigger than MN waters can kick out. Anyone know a good charter service that provide license and equipment? It doesn't have to be private either, just reasonably priced for 4 of us to go.

If you're willing to travel to Marathon, in the Keys, I'd suggest Mike Biffel from Big Dawg Sportfishing. He loves to fish and is an excellent guide. If you do a search for Big Dawn Sport Fishing, you'll find his site. We had an awesome experience with him.

I just got back from Cocoa Beach...there are many charters out of there...It's about a 30 min drive east from Orlando.

I just don't know which is the best.

You wil have to look for what is generally called a "party boat". Chances of finding a guide who will take a party of four aboard a smaller in-shore boat would be slim I would think. I'm sure you'll be able to find one of the larger boats that is more capable of taking children etc.

Have fun.

If it were me I would trade the saltwater fishing to go do some bass fishing at Lake Toho. I've done it before, and it is well worth it. I have also done some salt water fising in Florida. (I have family that lives down there) I have always had way better luck saltwater fishing the Gulf Coast side. Calmer and warmer water seems to have been the best for me in the past.
